The woman the myth the legend
A very humble person who probably played a much greater impact into the art scene then she gives herself credit for. She was a trailblazer and an incredibly talented and gifted artist to boot. She gives full credit to those that came after her about blazing their own style so different from her own that it's hard for her to connect the dots but under all of that was a foundation laid by her and others.
She talks a little quietly, which she admits to in the beginning so the overall mic is higher than usual making for more background noise and static. You can tell that this is Jason's last interview of the series as he is focused to the point and leads the conversation naturally but highlighting some great aspects of her artistic life as well as asking some pretty deep questions.
